    Well for every person ready to pay as soon as they receive an invoice, there's probably people who never end up actually paying while tying up an item. If they can sell it in person, they probably should (generally speaking) given their situation.

    They could have given me a one hour chance to pay up before cancelling the invoice. They should not respond to emails if they have no intention of shipping. Why would they waste their time?

    Face it: it was not an economically-minded store policy. It was simply an employee who did not follow through

    More like if you spam their inbox by inquiring on 10 items in rapid succession [​IMG]
    Not that it helped in the end

    I did manage to get one item from Atelier. But that said, their CS really needs work. If they are too busy to respond, fair enough. If they would rather sell to customers physically in the store, also good. But ignoring a paypal email just minutes after affirming available stock is something else altogether. They did agree to sell me 2 items and put both on hold, but in the end I only got one-for which I am grateful, no doubt.

    The point is, why bother to respond / promise to reserve if there arn't any plans to actually do it? Just say no, and nobody would be unhappy

    Yea. Using a 20% coupon code. The second picture is from a Hong Kong store that sells it at almost a double price.

    There's a few pair that also caught my attention but they are all of the distressed leather that I don't need. Looks good and derbies also available. Masanda?

    Masnada dude, yes.

    There's another pair (different brand, different shop) I am monitoring now, hoping it will get marked down at least slightly. To me these are perfect lace-ups.

    guidi 788z with no stitches around the heel counter. did it come like that from the factory (is there a letter code for that?) or can the stitches be removed with no structural damage and no aesthetic damage (no gaping holes)?
